"a 12 vs. 12 mech skirmish and would take a good eight hours to play"
but that’s what some of us like/want ... i sat at a game for 6-10 hours when we play .. why not here (yes i like a fast match .. but what about the OLD TT gamers

I don't think the older BattleTech gamers are the target audience, which is both good (for everyone else) and bad (for old BT gamers). On the plus side, this game will have many more players on hand to fight against, instead of the limited pool of people in your area who play BT. Also, there is always MegaMek for those who really want to play the classic BT game on computer/online.
That said, it sounds like a lance is going to be the largest unit size in the game, which is a little disappointing.

Of course, the devs could decide to add support for an additional deployed lance per player at a later time.
If so, I would be one of those who'd go for it.

Great article...This is my most desired online game of the year (while not very excited about the MW Online side of things). Am I the only one? Perhaps it's just my inner strategist.
